Please consider pledging and committing to regular offerings as this will help sustain the life and witness of the Scots Kirk within the International community and area of Lausanne.
Planned, conscientious and prayerful giving is a part of our calling as Christian disciples, helping us to grow personally and spiritually. Pledging allows us to plan our personal budget and to give a set amount regularly, instead of giving what we have left in our pocket on any one Sunday. We can pledge weekly, monthly or annually, depending on what is easiest for each.
Our annual statement of income and expenditure is produced for the Annual Business Meeting of the congregation held in the spring. This is an opportunity for every member of the church to ask questions and make comment on how our givings are used. Please don’t hesitate to contact the Pledging Coordinator if you would like to discuss any matter concerning stewardship and pledging.
The accounts for the Church are presented for acceptance by the Congregation at the Annual Business Meeting, usually held sometime in March. The Audited Congregational Accounts are made available for all members to read, once they have been adopted by the Kirk Session.
